LONDON, Nov 18 (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's Conservatives have a 14 point lead over the opposition Labour Party ahead of a Dec. 12 election, a poll published by Good Morning Britain showed on Monday.

The opinion poll, carried out by Survation, put support for the Conservatives on 42%, compared to 28% for Labour. The pro-European Union Liberal Democrats were on 13% and the Brexit Party was on 5%.

It did not give changes in levels of support as this was the first in the poll series.
